Sri Mulyani Explains Funding Required to Achieve Carbon Emission Goal
The second day of the 2022 Sweden-Indonesia Sustainability Partnership (SISP) week continued the discussion that was focused on building a strong foundation within sustainable energy. In the approach to developing sustainability, Indonesia and Sweden shared a mutual interest in the establishment of renewable energy as a step to reach Net Zero Emissions by 2050. According to Jaya Wahono of PT. Clean Power Indonesia, the country is facing three challenges in its ambition to implement renewable energy and reach net zero emissions. First, as the biggest archipelago country, the implementation of the super grid in Indonesia can be challenging and will take time. Second is that Indonesia still needs to catch up with neighboring countries in electric consumption. The discussion of the second-day seminar of SISP 2022 on energies also focused on smart grid, blue energy, green energy, energy efficiency, and heat efficiency. In the hope to maintain cooperation, a memorandum of understanding was signed between Indonesia's electricity company PLN and Business Sweden.
